Road gritting and snow clearance is a very visible part of your work and with around £160 million spent on grit by councils each year* you need to be sure that budget is used wisely. Our gritting and snow plough solutions use our proprietary control systems which can be controlled safely from the cab, or even pre-programmed with your intended route, to make the best use of your resources.

There’s more than just gritting that needs to be done though, and Econ Engineering is by your side here too. Whether you need vehicles to help repair and maintain roads or move materials, Econ has a range of solutions which can adapt to your needs.
